NCAA TOURNAMENT

(Anonymous) 2017-03-14 11:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Anybody doing brackets this year? Who'd you pick to win the title? I've got Villanova/UNC as the final game with Villanova to win the title.

I was looking at a bracket this morning and I'm confused by where the "First Four" winners go?

I'm supposed to be paying attention to this, because one of my co-worker's son is playing. But damned if I can ever remember when the games are on. I've finally got it down that I remember what team he's on, but that's about it. I just cheer him on whenever she gives me the updates.

Favorite: real chocolate eggs/rabbits (NOT the grainy, chocolate-flavored-but-isnt-really-chocolate crap that is most Easter candy marketed towards kids)

Least favorite: fake chocolate and those individually wrapped marshmallow eggs covered with a pastel candy coating

I don't really like anything that's too sweet, like Cadbury Creme Eggs or Peeps, but I love Cadbury mini eggs that are solid chocolate. I think Dove makes some solid chocolate eggs, too.

Most candy that is specifically marketed as "Easter candy" is just not as good to me as ordinary candy. Jelly beans are good if I'm in the mood. Peanut butter eggs are good, but I generally like most things with peanut butter and chocolate, and don't like the Easter ones as much as just plain ol' Reese's cups (the ratios can be off even if it's the same brand). Peeps are cute to look at but they're just slightly flavored sugar with a weird texture. Chocolate bunnies are usually milk chocolate which by itself is boring and just makes me thirsty.

I love Easter! And I usually do eat Easter candy in the celebratory spirit. I guess I just don't think it's anything special and wouldn't seek it out the rest of the year.

I love the Reese's eggs and jelly beans.

I don't know that I have a least favorite, but then I'm known to describe myself as a human garbage disposal because I'll eat anything.

So I think I'm working with a war criminal

[personal profile] thewakokid 2017-03-14 11:37 pm (UTC)(link)
This guy I'm working with was telling me about his time in the army. He was telling me that the Rules of Engagement were such that if a potential combatant was reaching for a suspected explosive, held a suspected explosive, or moved to throw a suspected explosive, he was allowed to open fire upon potential combatant.

If, however, the potential combatant had just thrown a suspected explosive, and it had already left a potential combatants hands the Rules of Engagement declared the potential combatant to not be a current threat, and therefore not to be harmed. Seems very odd to me, but then those are the rules, right?

My current work mate decided to end this happy little story by telling me "of course we would just say he was reaching for another explosive and shoot the fucker anyway! hahaha"

I just thought I'd share that with you all because I honest to God don't know how I'm supposed to process that. I mean, that's a war crime right?

Travel Thread

(Anonymous) 2017-03-14 11:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Any tips on scoring cheap flights? I've read Tuesdays are the best days to book but the prices don't seem any cheaper. I'm travelling late June to early July. It's a busy time, so I know it's going to be pricey, but any chances prices could go down?

Also, Airbnb. It pops up every time I look for places to stay. But I'm not sure about it. Anyone used it before? Some of the places look pretty good and cheap. Though I've only been looking at the ones with reviews. Would you risk a place with no reviews?


Feel free to add questions or advice. It's my first time traveling alone. Anyone else done it?

"Realistic" means "makes me feel good about myself and/or the world around me"

(Anonymous) 2017-03-15 02:13 am (UTC)(link)
This springs from an ongoing discussion/beef that I've had.

People say that they want fiction and characters to be "realistic." But, in practice, it's the larger-than-life characters and the larger-than-life stories that gain traction.

The kid whose father is dead, and whose mother is in jail, and who is acting out as a result? He's a brat. The orphan who's been abused his entire life, who's being hunted by a madman, who has witnessed the murder of a classmate? He's whiny and mean. The woman who's been abandoned, multiple times, and who has had to eke out an existence on the margins of society? She's a bitch. Or, more charitably, she's boring.

But the boy with amazing powers who is only ever "mean" to the "bad" people; whose name is spelled in a Super Special way; whose mishaps are always due to the interference of others; whose primary flaw is that the fantasy equivalent of "jocks" feel threatened by him... He is the pinnacle. The book series featuring him is really, really realistic (because he pines for a girl, you see, and his parents died, so he's sad and stuff. Also he has a gift for the guitar. You've picked up the guitar recently, haven't you? You could totally be like him). Your friends and coworkers will hear about it. It will be recommended to them. It might even be positioned as the series that will "get them into fantasy."

Unless the series they get sold is 'A Song of Ice and Fire,' in which case:

"There would only be white people in this fantasy country because Europe, therefore realism," and "of course the women get raped, because women in the real world get raped, so yeah. If there wasn't rape I wouldn't buy it, despite the magic and dragons."

All of it, all of it, reinforces everything that the reader/viewer already knew, felt, and was comfortable with. If you take them to a place where they feel uncomfortable, then they reject it, and one of the defenses they use is, "it wasn't realistic."

But.

They also want to escape, so if you take them to a place that feels too much like what they're already experiencing, then they reject it, and...fall back on the same defense: "it wasn't realistic."

What this all comes down to is that the vast majority of people are too stupid to be able to get anything meaningful out of fiction, which I recognize is super condescending.

By most folks I mean.

They ain't gonna like what you put out. They ain't gonna like your style. They ain't gonna like the way you look.

That's okay. That's so okay because you're you, you hear?

Just keep on.

Don't change. It hurts and all but don't change.
